If Books are Written One Word at a Time then Astrology Books are Written One Glyph at a Time

Darwin
Handwriting example from Charles Darwin’s note book No. 2.

During the last twelve months I have been busy with my general work of consultations, course prep, teaching, mentoring, speaking and presiding over my local astrology group and all that that entailed.

As well as the day to day ebb and flow of life I have myself been studying and taking advanced courses on several topics and alongside all of this I have been nurturing my latest baby, no not a real baby, but a creative endeavor – a book manuscript.

A writer

It is only in the past few years that I have considered myself a writer. During a productive Jupiter transit of my ninth house, when I first received acknowledgement for an article I had published, I began to see the light with the written word and it has grown to brighten my day.

I now have a little shelf space for grammar, writing, editing and publishing books which have found a place in my home. This is unusual as I now have precious astrology books piled on the floor which is something I would never have done before. Horrors.

But we change and evolve.

A title

My book is about The Oriental Planet and has that title. The name says it all. It explores insights and perceptions on my original research and observations over many years.

You don’t know what goes into a book until you yourself are writing yours. Time and time management is the thing. I’m getting near the end now. Ha, I’ve been saying that all this year. But I really am into the home straight and can see the winning post in the distance.

A deadline

I have pencilled in March 21st as the final date to get it off to the publisher. Even I noticed I didn’t mention the year. But I mean 2014. For sure. Definitely.

A dream

When this mammoth task comes to its conclusion it will be a dream come true for me. My father was writing a personal memoir way back in the seventies. I vaguely remember him tapping page after page on an old typewriter working into the wee hours. He was a hunt and peck typist. I wish I had paid more attention as he had skills I am now scrambling to learn on a sharp curve.

An invitation

If you are familiar with this chart feature and would like to share your experiences with me I would love to hear your oriental planet story. I invite you to write to me at alison@starzology.com I will read every message.

Is Your Creative Writing Time a Write-off?

by Alison Price

Writing

Writing is a creative exercise expressed through your Mercurial energies.

The actual process of putting pen to paper can easily become derailed by outside distractions.

You are better of doing any creative writing at the time of day that is supported by your own natal mercury placement.

Take steps to ensure your creative writing time aligns with your natal chart.


Angles as Time Markers

In a chart the division of the wheel by the ascendant and descendant and the Midheaven and the IC as axes are also sensitive points. This division of the chart created the four quadrants.

The four are known as the chart angles.

If the Sun is near an angle it indicate the time of day.

  • The Sun on the ascendant is dawn,
  • TheSun on the Midheaven is midday,
  • The Sun on descendant is sunset and
  • The Sun on the IC in the middle of the night.

Planets placed near an angle are best stimulated during the time of day indicated by the particular angle.

Mercury rules writing

When Mercury is in the first quadrant (1st, 2nd or 3rd house) in your natal chart you can best express its energies in the early morning before dawn

If your Mercury in the second quadrant (4th, 5th or 6th houses) writing in the evening is best for you.

When Mercury is placed in the third quadrant (7th, 8th or 9th houses) it suggests your writing will flow best in the afternoon and before dusk.

Mercury in the fourth quadrant (10th, 11th or 12th houses) inclines you to pen your missives in the morning and finish them before lunch.

Writing and Mercury go hand-in-hand

What about other Mercury functions? The timing is the same, in-line with your Mercury placement time frame you can benefit by performing other Mercury related activities such as:

Preparing emails, making phone calls, writing your blog, answering questions, signing papers, bartering deals, closing deals, booking appointments, making an initial approach, discussing important issues, having a date or speaking your mind.

There are many facets to Mercury and you can improve your communications all round by doing them at the right time.
